This voice-over is accompanied by a sequence of images showing various aspects of Byron Cooper Sisler’s life after the war.
As a series of black and white photographs of Byron Sisler’s life appear, the voice of Byron Cooper Sisler as an older man begins to reminisce about his life. As he speaks, photographs of Sisler and his wife and family, with photos of his family and friends enjoying the family cabin.
Looking back, after all was said and done, I had a pretty good life.
When the war ended, Mildred was back home waiting for me, just like she’d promised. She was going to be a nurse, and I went back to the bank.
We got married and had ourselves a family. I built a nice cabin up north, spent the summers there with the family and friends, called it The Retreat. It was a good life.
Hard to say, but in the end, I guess it was the gas that finally got me.
